Learn more about Bexhill’s governance review at Town Forum meeting


Residents will have a chance to learn more about the review into the town’s political future at Bexhill Town Forum’s meeting on Friday (February 10).

The forum, an organisation giving people in Bexhill a voice and information, has tailored the meeting around the ongoing community governance review.

Sussex Association of Local Councils chief executive Trevor Leggo and Rother District Council’s executive director Malcolm Johnston will explain the review and answer questions.

Forum chairman Christine Bayliss said: “This is the opportunity for us to shed some light on the options and the way individuals and organisation can make their voices heard based on information rather than emotion.

“Later in the year we will hold a second forum meeting where we hope to be able to hold a constructive debate on the future shape of local government for Bexhill.

“It is a once in a lifetime decision for the Bexhill.”

The review will explore numerous options for Bexhill’s government, including a town council, with the first consultation beginning last month.

The meeting is at St Peter’s Community Centre in Bexhill Old Town. Doors open at 6pm for a 6.30pm start.
